My husband got a call trying to get him to sign up for a "free government grant" and it would only cost us $299. All he had to do was give them our checking account # and social security #. YEAH RIGHT! Don't fall for it.
Folks you nee to get homeland security involved. This is terrorism. Look up the definition. They treaten our security, they cause panic in most of us, our privacy is at risk, they have malicious intent, they are threatening our livelyhood and are of middle east origin(could be al-queada scamming us to fund their effort to fall the western world). you folks in the U of A are luky and thankfully fighting the fight. Here in Canada we are slowly and willignly giving up the country to immigrants forever losing our way of life. Now i now how Native Americans feel they experienced the same thing when we all came except they fought back bravely.
I think these come from bell's new call centres located in India. Bell(a canadian comp.) recently moved their business to India putting a wack of people unemployed here. To cut cost and dismantle the union. The way India handles the whole thing is through autodialing, which then rings you through a pourly english speaking Indian trying to earn a living from bell comissions by signing you up for bell services. The problem is their autodialing methods and the way the western world lives. 3 to 5 times a day monday to saturday nonstop what the F*$#! Today I tried something I heard in the past. When receiving a call pick it up and continuously press the pounds key this tells the auto dialing software to stop dialing your # I tried it and today I didn't receive the usual 11AM, 4PM and 8PM calls. We need to find a way to deal with bell such as suing or somthing. My family and especialy my wife and kids have been living with fear for 3 weeks not knowing the source and nature of these harassing calls.
Claimed to have name of "Jack" from Bell offering free call display for one month. Sounded young, and his english was poor. Heard television in the background. Was polite - wasn't persistent like a true telemarketer. Bell didn't know who it was. Police didn't know who it was.

claimed to be Bell phone service
Just got a call from this number at 6:30PM. I stayed on the line for a few seconds then the line dropped.
This # has been calling me for the last 3 weeks, every day around 1 pm. I answered today and it started ringing like I was making a call, so I hung up. I hope it's not one of those long distance scams!
No one there,I called back, no ringing the time duration of call just starts clocking
12+ times aday for 4 weeks
They call everyday and when I answer there's never anybody there. They call 3-5 times a day my wife works straight midnights and is furious!! We have called Bell (won't help) we even called the police because this is harrassment! I have call display and it has the number 123-434-3434, but when I call it back a recording says to try your call again. Something has to be done about this
CALLS EVERY 20 MINUTES. ARGH. REALLY ANNOYING
This number has beencalling my phone for the past three weeks on a daily basis. At least 3 - 6 times a day, but no one is ever there and when I call back and let the phone ring for an hour. No one answers How do I get rid of them. I do not have call display.
